Trump vulgarity debate has become an 's-show,' senator says

Trump vulgarity debate has become an 's-show,' senator says

Durbin says he wants Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to let the Senate debate the immigration measure this week as lawmakers try figuring out by Friday how to avoid a government shutdown.

"We've been working at this for four months, seriously working at it", Durbin said.

Leaders of both parties in Congress agree that our nation should not deport immigrant youths who grew up here and have nowhere else to go.

On Friday at 11:59:59 p.m. ET, the funding to keep the federal government running expires. This comes after lawmakers voted in December to extend funding the government to January 19. A dispute over how much to allocate to defense and domestic programs is another obstacle to a broader fiscal agreement. "Voters don't understand the nuances of the whole 60-vote thing and it doesn't translate well into a short sound bite: 'If they are in charge of everything, they are responsible for it, right?'"

"The only one that can allow a government shutdown is Donald Trump".

To overcome a filibuster, nine Democrats are needed to side with Republicans in the Senate.

"You know how many votes we usually got from Republicans when we kept government open or passed policies we thought were important?" Even though Amtrak depends on federal subsidies, it also gets revenue from ticket sales and has managed to stay open during past shutdowns. That's a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the last shutdown in 1995-96. But the president now seems intent on putting thousands of young people on a path to deportation, including about 900 immigrant members of the military. "We are in Congress and, regrettably, Congress is an institution that only acts when it's forced to". "I think it had added importance that the member of the president's own party would be that explicit in standing up for what I think is a value that most Americans have to share". But he said he doubts there will ultimately be a shutdown. I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened". It's possible that the shutdown contributed to an anti-government mood that ultimately damaged Democrats more in the November 2014 midterms, mostly by dampening turnout, despite contemporary perceptions that Republicans were more to blame.

Trump has denied using that language but has declared "DACA is probably dead", saying Democrats don't really want a deal.

Asked if that meant such individuals would be under permanent surveillance, Nielsen give no details but said: "Up until the point that you are a citizen, we want to continue to make sure we understand who you are and why you're here".

Trump rejected a bipartisan agreement reached by a group of senators.

"I think the President is encouraging us to go as quickly as we can", answered Secretary Nielsen, who said Mr. Trump also wanted to close a variety of loopholes in immigration law, to dissuade people to come to the USA illegally.

The furor over the president's reported remarks about why the US accepts immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations rather than places like Norway, has hardened positions on both sides.

Durbin said the tone shift at the meeting could be explained by the fact that Republicans from Capitol Hill had arrived at the White House and convinced Trump to take a tougher line.

His comments followed a blowup of a potential DACA amnesty deal with Democrats, which he on "Dicky Durbin" leaking details of a private meeting he had with senators. Even if it isn't, she said, Immigration and Customs Enforcement will not make deportation a priority. "Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted Monday.

House GOP leaders are crafting legislation that would keep the government funded through February 16.

Five days ago, President Donald Trump and a handful of congressional leaders got together to hash out the particulars of a bipartisan immigration deal.
